The Stone Forest

Situated 53 miles southeast of Kunming, the Stone Forest is a wonder of geology. About 200 million year ago the earth's crust shifted and forced this 200 acres of karst limestone stalagmites up from what was once a huge expanse of water. Paths wind through its spectacular valleys and around its reflecting pools. There are pavilions perched high on these pillars which offer sweeping views.
